Bob unless you got some LHD clocks in Kmh i can't see a way of doing it on an E36, infact i looked into it when i had mine and Alpina never bothered on the UK cars at all until the E39's appeared
That's what I thought and given how much kmh clocks go for ... not worth it for something that's still a compromise.

I spoke to soon, I drove it last night and this evening and I can smell a light wiff of petrol. I've had a cold so maybe its stronger. Either way, with the price of super and V12 action this must be resolved!
This got shared recently, thought initially your fuel leak had escalated Si, then realised it's a SWB ... probably #129 I think.

I always like tuning into your work on the B12, always in sympathy with the Alpina spirit, sensible and a dedication to ownership too.
